Pregnancy Journal...#1

I went to the doctor again and had a pap-smear done and also an internal ultrasound done.  I got my first picture of the baby!  That was really neat!

Oh, I forgot to tell you about how we told our parents, for Kevin's mom and dad, we bought a sweatshirt for each of them (Grandma and Grandpa on them) and wrapped them up and gave it to them on Kevin's birthday.  It took them a little while to figure out what we were trying to tell them.  Then we went over to my mom and dad's house.  (Dad was already in bed) We told mom that we had "97 Covered".  you see, my mom and dad have had a grandchild every year from 1998 (with the exception of 1994 when Kevin and I got married).  mom figured it out right away!  She then told dad the next morning, they were very excited!

Pregnancy Journal...#1

I met with the nurse today and she asked me my family's medical history and Kevin's family's medical history (which we only know from what Kevin has had since he was adopted).  The drew blood and gave me books and pamphlets to read.  She also told me what I should expect.
